Tech sector meekly waves arms in another bid to get Oz to amend its crypto-busting laws

... the testing ground for non-GDPR supposedly Western liberal democracies to see how far they can push while still saying "at least we're not Russia or China".

Even if one day you can't even fit a sheet of toilet paper in the gap.

I still don't understand what this will achieve even IF they force tech companies to use broken encryption. Anybody with half a brain cell will simply run their own unbroken crypto on top of whatever broken layer sits underneath. Is the end game that in that case they wave iron rods around while glancing meaningfully at my knee caps until I give in and hand them my own keys?
